theirs was the lowest bid. They ajrreed
to build a steel boat cheaper than the
Portland builders could build one with
a wooden bull, but still they are not to
pet the, contract. The reason is very
simple. If the contract went to Moraiw
there would be no graft for anybody.

CRUISER CHICAGO HOME
RETURNS FROM INTERNATIONAL
FESTIVITIES AT KIEL. AND
MAKES A RECORD RUN FROM
New York, August 14. The United
States cruiser Chicago, second of the
warships participating in the Interna
tional festivities at Kiel, Lisbon and
Portsmouth, to arrive home. Is now an
chored in the bay. "
The Chicago had made 2950 miles
from Lisbon, from where she cleared
August 1, In 12 days and two hours.
This was done while running undo
only five of her 10 boilers, and the ship
arrived in port in condition to stai
out again at a moment's notice for fllve'
days more, for she had used only 560
ton? of oal on the voyage out of her to
tal capacity of S50 tons. The trip across
was made on "the great circular route"
and whi'e four days of thick fog Inter
fered somewhawlth the time record,
the Chicago had generally calm weath
er, with a !ngle day of heavy sea.
Captain Cornwall told something ot
the personal side of the meeting. fit
Kiel with Emperor William, at London,
and with King Edward and Queen Al
exandra and at Lisbon with King
Charles and Queen Amelia of Portugal.
Emperor William was cordial to the
last d-r?r," said the captain, "and so
v. as Priri"- Henry. The emperor show
ed himself a remarkkable man if in no
other way than by the manner in which
he inspected theKearsarge and the far
'eeing questions whic h he asked about
all the working parts of the vessel.
"' n:e of the most charming occasions
of the vho!e viit to Kiel was the day
we spent en the emperor's yacht Meteor
at th race. There we met him in the
most informal way and he showed him-o-!f
as the courteous host entertaining
party of friends. Nothing could havt
leH-n more delightful or better lcu
ited to express his evident friendship
fcr the American people. Also, I may
r'ircrk that th emperor h more than
fen i of a good story, and can tell on
hini-lf in a capital style."
